Welcome to the first of my Christmas Gift Guides of 2021! I know it may seem early, but I like to do my gift guides before Black Friday, so that if you have your eye on anything, you can add it to your basket, and hopefully get a good deal this weekend (although I do have some discount codes included in this post)! I always do giveaways to coincide with my gift guides, but I've noticed in the past that some people unfollow me as soon as they've received their prize, which leaves a sour taste if I'm honest. I think that this year, I will donate some products/sets to the staff at the hospital who took care of my Mam when she had her stroke, and I'll randomly choose some people who leave a comment both here and on Instagram, and send them a private message to say they've won a prize. It feels more sincere to me. This first post is all about gifts under £25, and there really are some bargains to be had!
Caudalie Moisturising Hand Cream Trio: This contains three 30ml hand creams, which are some of the best on the market - nourishing, but not greasy, and they smell divine! This trio is priced at £12, but if you use my LYMIN code on Look Fantastic, you can save 20% and it will be reduced to £9.59.
This Works Stress Less, Sleep Better Set: Is there anybody you know who doesn't need more sleep?! After the past 20-21 months, I think we've all experienced stress and disturbed sleep, so this gift would be appreciated by most people! It contains a 35ml Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and a 35ml Stress Check Mood Manager Spray, which helps to decompress when you're overwhelmed or frazzled. It's priced at £20, with a value of £29, but you can get it for £16, by using my LYMIN code on Look Fantastic.
Dr Dennis Gross Peel & Protect: Regular readers will know that I call these pads 'texture erasers' - the blend of acids really do leave the skin smooth and clear. This set contains a box of 5 and a 15ml Lightweight Physical Defense Sun Screen. This is priced at £22, but my LYMIN code also works on this, to reduce it to £17.60.
Ameliorate 3 Steps To Smooth Skin*: Another brand that regular readers will know I love! This set contains a Nourishing Body Wash, Smoothing Body Exfoliant and Transforming Body Lotion (all 50ml). These are the perfect products to use if you have bumpy skin on the backs of your arms, or anywhere on your body. You must use them consistently to get results, but it's 100% worth it if you want smooth skin.
Jo Malone Body & Hand Wash: For a touch of luxury, without breaking the bank, these body washes are the perfect gift. They fill the room with scent, that lingers on the skin, but they don't strip it. This is the perfect size for travelling too! £16.
Olaplex Hait Repair Trial Kit: This brand changed my hair so much when I started to use it. This contains No. 3 (Pre-wash treatment), No. 4 & 5 (shampoo and conditioner) and No. 6, which is a bond smoother, which strengthens, smooths and adds shine to the hair. A great kit to see if the products work for you, with 30ml in each tube.
Jo Loves Pomelo Hand Cream and Sanitiser: I absolutely love this and think it would make a brilliant gift, as hand sanitisers are necessary, but can be drying. This has two tubes, within the one - one has sanitiser and the other has hand cream. The scent, Pomelo, is so uplifting and invigorating, and the hand cream is nourishing. The perfect desk or handbag product.
Huda Beauty Contour & Glow Up Duo: This is great value, as the pouch is reusable and the perfect size for taking some mini essentials in your handbag. It contains a mini lip pencil and full size lipstick - all very Huda!
Space NK Voyage Body Duo: This really is amazing value at £22, as it contains a body wash and body lotion - each with 350ml in them. The scent reminds me of summer holidays - pina coladas, sun cream etc. It has notes of mandarin, coconut and sandalwood, and makes me want to book a sun holiday immediately!
Charlotte Tilbury Famously Pink Lipstick: This coral-pink lipstick is limited edition, with a gorgeous formula, and some added crystals on the lid to make it extra special!
Did anything here catch your eye, either for yourself or a loved one? I'd love to hear what you'd most love to receive!
Thanks for reading!
